Revolut Cards - Everything you need to know

Best Banks in Ireland

Mar 26, 2020 2:39:35 PM / by Prateek Sharma


Ireland has a fairly competitive banking market with multiple banks offering their services.

One issue that plagues Irish banks is outdated apps, poor online experience and sneaky hidden charges that make them a bad service provider. Digital Banks like Revolut and N26 are slowly taking over the market and offering a whiff of fresh air in an industry that otherwise seems to be stuck in the 1980s. 

Some factors to consider while opening an account are:

1. Time it takes to open an account ( Should be 24 hours or less)

2. Fees for operating an account ( Should be free)

3. Paperwork required ( If they want 15 copies of everything, ditch them asap)

4. ATM Withrawal fees and number of ATMs across the country

5. Additional Services ( Forex, Insurance, Loans, Crypto Support)


This is our list based on research and usage:

1. Permanent TSB - Free account if you get paid into it, Good app and lots of ATMs

2. Revolut - Free, set up within minutes and the best bank app ever

3. Ulster Bank - Lots of Branches, Decent app and fair spread of ATMs

4. Bank of Ireland - The biggest most robust local bank, issues with customer service and outdated apps but the biggest network
